Event Info: 

Help find Flat Stanley! Flat Stanley has gone missing on the Connecticut portion of the New England Trail (NET) and we need your help to find him. Join us for a fun adventure as we embark on a scavenger hunt and search for clues to find the hidden CT Flat Stanley letterbox. Find Flat Stanley as we hike the NET and have your picture taken with him to be entered into a random drawing for a CT Walk Book. Fun for all ages. Bring your own stamp and journal if you have one or borrow one of ours. Wear waterproof/ comfortable shoes; bring your camera (optional). Rain postpones to Sunday, July 31, same time.

Based on the character, stories, and adventures of Flat Stanley created by the late Jeff Brown of Stonington, CT. FLAT STANLEY® is a registered trademark of the Trust u/w/o Richard C. Brown f/b/o Duncan Brown.
